[edit]not so obvious searches answered most questions for me[/edit]

hello. Doing my first attempt at selling to boardsort. I've been using a others in the past plus two local yards. What I've found is everyone had different "terms" or ideas for what boards are what. The local yard and the PM refiner I was using simply went by High/mid/low levels on blank, copper, silver, and gold board sorts. Using the industry standard corner hole markings for classification. Locally they go by "grade" so I'm lost on what is what by "types" ie mid high vs mid low and high grade vs mid grade and well.

Any chance you could help me reclassify these for sending to boardsort?
There's more than what's photographed too. mostly identical or nearly identical so I only did the basics. I'm sorry there's so much. Just totally lost on where your differences are. Took front and back of most of them.

most of the items you have questions about they have pictures describing what each classification is.

Most of the boards you have depopulated enough to downgrade most of them. almost all those boards you posted would be preiferal grade or less. They are looking for the IC chips and BGA chips on the boards, so leave them on and you will get the full grade.

I am not a mod though, so you would have to wait for their opinion.

I would recommend you to post less than like 7 pictures at a time. Being so many pictures it is hard to follow and answer the post for any member to give you their two senses.

Board sort only buys the Li-Ion batteries from cell phones and laptops and you have to tape over the exposed metal contacts to avoid a possible explotion.

Go ahead and read some of the other forums to get a sense of what you want to sell to boardsort and to your local scrap yard based on yor location and the cost of shipping.

Hope this helps a little bit.
